Are there any ways to secure my Domain Name. I'm owning more domains at this time, I'm afraid someone can steale my domain if I don't have any protections for domains. I'm sure more people will care this but they haven't got the best solutions for secure their domains yet.
What is your advice?

All you have to do is take good care for your information in domain registration if privacy is not active all information should be correct rest all is good after expire or unauthorized transfer of domain(s) you can always get them back in specified time.

In order to keep your domain name protected, all you have to do is to disable client transfer ability and to renew your domain for 5+ years.

1. Yes, you are locking your domain name transfer availability so that the only way for someone to be able to request a transfer (not succeed at it) is by receiving an EPP code which is issued by your domain name register after you submit a support ticket or ask them through live that (obviously you have to confirm your identity -- PIN number of your account).

2. Sometimes people forget to renew their domain names and therefore they lose them. If you renew it for 5+ years then you won't really have to worry about renewing it every year. It also gives you a ranking boost you in search engines.

I know a way to protect your domain name is using "Private Registration",some domain registers are free for private registration.

What you are talking about is Domain Name Privacy which is a service that hides your real contact information by replacing it with the registar's headquarters address. This will not help you efficiently from someone who may want to initiate an unauthorized domain name transfer.

There is only so much that you can do to protect your domain names. First would be to use a secure password, that is probably the most important. Second, be sure to utilize security features such as security questions & pin codes as identity verification for your account. Last, the best way to ultimately protect your domain is to use a trusted registrar, preferrably one that utilizes two-factor authentication methods to prevent unauthorized access to your account(s). Finally, be sure that your domain is locked from transfer, and that the email addresses that you have on file are secure.
